Question by sam: In university requirements, is geography considered a ‘science’, or is it only physics, biology, chemistry?
I know that biology, chemistry and physics are typical sciences, but i was wondering if geography was considered as a science?
In terms of university requirements/applications..? (in the UK)

For example some courses i am looking at, state the requirements of English and a science..and physics was the only science i took at GCSE level, and i dropped it after that.

Thanks.
oh yeah..social studies. i don’t know why i didn’t think of that..cos i actually know it aha :| there was just something in the back of my mind thinking that geography might be classed as a science..like an earth science.

oh well..thanks anyway. [:

Geography is considered as a social study, I believe.
Also, chemistry, biology, and physics are lab sciences, unlike psychology, sociology, and physical science.

Question by DrinkMilkLoveLife: What kind of math should be expected in a Biology University program?
I’m planning to go to university two years from now to study biology. I’m very good at the sciences (biology, chemistry, and physics), however I am weak at math. If I were to go into a biology program at university, how hard would the math courses be? Assuming I’m taking a biology course that has little to no focus on math, zoology, biodiversity, genetics, ect.

Best answer:

Answer by Joe
First off, if you are very proficient with chemistry and physics, then you will soon realize that you must be proficient with mathematics as it is the underlying basis for chemical reactions and most physical laws that were constructed (i.e. Newton w/ calculus and physics eqns). Biology actually has a lot of math as its basis, once you get past your introductory courses, you will see that you encounter advanced mathematics in courses such as ecology (eigenvectors are calculated here). Also most universities have pre-requisites of Calculus I and II, so you will have to become very comfortable with dealing with math. So to answer your question plainly, the math classes will not be all that tough, just make sure you have a strong platform to build off of from trigonometry and precalculus, with that platform calculus should follow pretty easily.

Question by john christopher: Is there a game related to science, biology, chemistry and physics?
Is there a game related to science, biology, chemistry and physics
that can be found in the internet? That can be played in the internet?
Do you have links for science games? If there are any, thank you for those that will
answer my question seriously ! = )
Nice answer Sasidhar ! It’s about theory of evolution, planet earth and galaxies.
Are there any more answers other than spore?
Thank you Sasidhar !
Are there any other online games related to science ?
Thanks in advanced ! = )

Best answer:

Answer by Sasidhar
Try Spore. Its not ideal but comes pretty close when you consider mainstream games.

Question by Nikki: Is it a good idea to double major in Biology and Psychology?
If you want to go to grad school for neuroscience

I had no idea what I wanted to do for the first two years I was in college, and I basically just took a lot of liberal arts subjects that I was interested in. I’m a junior now, and I will be a 5-year student no matter what if I do this.

Is this a terrible idea or a good one?
My university doesn’t offer the neuroscience major, unfortunately.

Answer by Vlad
For a career in Neuroscience it is definitely a good idea.

Question by cherrydoom2008: How to begin search for grad school in biology?
I’m a second-semester sophomore now, and I am interested in starting to look at grad schools for PHD work in biology. I’m working in a lab involved in genetics and neuroscience and am interested in that area of medical research. I started looking for schools, but realized I don’t actually know where to start. What did you do?

Best answer:

Answer by MM
I’d start by just talking to the grad students and PhDs in your lab and your professors. Ask them what they were looking for in a program, what they did to prepare, how they chose…whatever you think might be helpful. A lot of students aren’t thinking this far ahead yet, so even if you just do that and don’t start examining how the questions they asked might apply to your search for another semester or so, you’ll still be in pretty good shape.

Question by tommy11: Can I get a MS in biology if I have a BA in a completely different field?
Most people are advising me to stick with my field (counseling, therapy, social work, etc…) but I am more interested in the biological side of psych (neuroscience, pharmacology). Most people applying for these majors already have a degree in biology or chemistry so they have an advantage (more lab experience). Is it possible for me, with very hard work of coarse, to be accepted into these types of programs with the major I have already?
ONLY MATURE ANSWERS PLEASE. NEGATIVE COMMENTS DO NOT HELP AND ONLY MAKE PEOPLE FEEL WORSE. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ANYTHING HELPFUL TO SAY PLEASE DO NOT BOTHER TO WRITE ANYTHING. THANK YOU.

Answer by toogerq
It depends on what your undergraduate transcripts look like. It also depends on the graduate school you plan to apply to. You may have to take certain undergraduate courses in a biology/chemistry type field while you are working on your masters degree. The good news is that since you are technically a graduate student and you are not working toward a bachelors degree, you won’t have to worry about any of the undergraduate general education requirements that most universities have. You can just take all of the classes strictly related to your degree.
